Incredible Week In New York

Feld Thoughts

As I was catching up on email from last week (not quite done yet) I was reflecting on the awesome week I had in New York. I had a couple of board meetings, spent a bunch of time at TechStars , gave some talks, had a pair of really fun late night dinners, had two strong runs (including one amazing one) along the east river, and stayed up until 1am drinking scotch with my partner Seth one night who was also in New York for a few days this week.

Book: Tech and the City: The Making of New York’s Startup Community

Feld Thoughts

On Digital Sabbath #5, I read Tech and the City: The Making of New York’s Startup Community. I got through half of it on my flight home from New York on Saturday morning; the balance laying on the couch next to Amy on Saturday evening. If you are involved in the New York startup community, this is a must read book. One thing that jumped out at me that Alessandro segmented the New York startup community into six neighborhoods.

New York City Tech Podcast: Eli Bronner, Growth at AngelList

View from Seed

New tech ecosystems often benefit from entrepreneurs who will dive in blind and figure out their direction along the way. In 2010, Eli Bronner and his Lua Technologies co-founders were this exact profile of entrepreneurs, and New York City was an exuberant tech ecosystem without much structure or identity.

Doing The Top Of Mind Drill At TechStars New York

Feld Thoughts

On Tuesday, I spent the day at TechStars New York. David Cohen and I then hopped on a train, cranked on emails and interviews all the way to New York, and then I finished the night (after some more email) with a one hour lecture by Skype to a class of San Diego based students. I’m super psyched about all the teams I met – it feels like the TechStars New York program is very high quality and off to a great start.

Welcome New York to the Global EIR Coalition

Feld Thoughts

Last week New York was the third state to create a program – called the International Innovators Initiative (IN2NYC) – based on the construct of the Global Entrepreneur in Residence program. This is a New York City based program created by the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and the City University of New York (CUNY).

September in New York

Startup Lessons Learned

For the next month or so I'll be on the road, starting in Washington DC and then proceeding to New Haven, New York, and Boston.

Two Days of Entrepreneurial Community Building In Upstate New York

Feld Thoughts

On Wednesday and Thursday I spent two awesome days with my long time friend Martin Babinec (the founder of Trinet), his partner at Upstate Venture Connect – Nasir Ali – and about 1000 members of the Upstate New York entrepreneurial community. Since Upstate New York had gotten so much snow so far this year, everyone was freaked out and all of the events on Wednesday were turned into conference calls that I was going to do from Martin’s house.

Human Instrumentation at the New York Marathon

Feld Thoughts

Fred Wilson emailed me a link to Dennis Crowley’s post I’m running the NYC Marathon tomorrow! Fred knows my obsession with human instrumentation, marathons, and social media. And if you recognize Dennis’ name, that’s because he’s the founder / CEO of Foursquare. As I write this from my house in Eldorado Springs, Colorado, I can see that Dennis is at mile 4.64 of the NYC Marathon via RunKeeper. He just checked in at mile 5 on Foursquare.

What are the best New York City events to attend to meet VC’s and Angel investors?

Gust

Although there are many, many excellent events each week in New York that it would make sense for a startup entrepreneur to attend (see Gary’s Guide, Startup Digest, or This Week in NY Innovation), the truth is that (a) VCs and serious investors don’t go to most of them, and (b) the odds are slim that even if you and the investor were at the same event, you will have the opportunity or time to do more than say hello.

Upstate New York Do More Faster Book Tour

Feld Thoughts

Last summer, my long time friend Martin Babinec and his colleague Nasir Ali asked me if I’d come spend a few days in Upstate New York talking about TechStars and entrepreneurial communities. We’ve been friends for 20 years so it was easy for me to say yes to spend two days with Martin in Upstate New York and help him further his mission of expanding the entrepreneurial communities throughout the region.

What are the differences between startups/tech companies founded in Silicon Valley and those founded in New York?

The Most Obvious Mobile Ad Unit and What the New York Times Got Wrong

Both Sides of the Table

The New York Times recently ran an article titled, “ Tech Companies Leave Phone Calls Behind.” ” I love the NY Times and am a paying subscriber. But this article missed the real trend. The premise of the article is that in an increasingly online world ruled by techies who don’t want to talk on the phone, the era of being able to call the company in which you do business is winding down. They cite Quara, Google, Twitter & Facebook as obvious examples.
